Craft Fair at Oscar Morera Art Gallery
If you´re willing to take a memory of Cuba back home, besides typical ones everybody pursue (a rum bottled, a Cuban cigar, a tour with American cars, a photo at Tropicana) you have to visit craft fairs. Yes, yes, yes, those stands that sometimes fill an entire block, and others, a reduced spot. It´s impossible not see them at first glance. Moreover, equal impossible walk away from there with empty hands.
Among so many and various items there´s one in particular waiting for being rediscovered by your eyes, although the list is large: yarey handbags, leather shoes, necklaces, small woven bags, curious handicraft made of wood and plaster. All of these and so much more you can see in “Oscar Fernández Morera” art gallery. Months of July and August are full of manufacturers that go there happy to exhibit and sell their merchants. If you look around inside of the building, you will find for sure a nice piece in good price, perhaps, something small, handmade with few resources, that has, however, an irresistible charm: it says Cuba.
